Here is every device Disney+ will stream on at launch. Like, no fucking Smart TVs tho?
Disney has dropped the last of devices that Disney+ will be available at launch. And, like. This is the essence of a first-world problem: it ain’t launching on any Smart TVs. The fuck?
Disney+ is almost here. We know many important details about Disney’s standalone streaming service—including how much it’ll cost and what you’ll be able to watch—and the final piece of the puzzle was just revealed: all the devices you can use to stream Disney+ at launch.
And as you’ll see from the following list, there are some notable omissions. Here’s everything that will support Disney+ when the service launches on November 12:
- Apple TV
- Android devices, including Android TV
- iOS and iPadOS
- PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro
- Roku devices, including smart TVs with the Roku TV OS
- Web browsers via disneyplus.com
- Xbox One consoles, including the Xbox One S and One X
Notice what’s missing? Amazon products. No Fire TV devices or Kindle Fire tablets will support the service, at least at launch. The Nintendo Switch is absent from the list as well, meaning that Hulu and YouTube are still the only streaming platforms available on Nintendo’s latest console.
It’s always possible that Disney+ could expand to Amazon and Nintendo’s products in the future, but for now, that doesn’t seem to be part of Disney’s plan for its new service.
That said, Ultra HD streaming does seem to be part of the plan—at least for select content that supports UHD 4K and HDR. You’ll need a strong enough internet connection and devices that can manage that resolution, of course, but Disney+ won’t charge you extra to access the best video quality you can get.
Disney+ will cost $6.99 monthly or $69.99 annually, or you can bundle Disney+ with ESPN Plus and the basic Hulu service for just $12.99 a month.
